Brazil is the Women's U20 World Champion
Brazil, the World Champion, beat Serbia & Montenegro 3-1 in the big final and claimed the Women's U20 World Championships title for the third time in row. This is the fifth gold medal for Brazil. The South American team played like a champion during the whole match with Rizola Neto Antonio who led his team calmly and carried his team to the gold medal.
Serbia and Montenegro began to the game at a fast tempo building 8-6, 16-13 leads. Brazil leveled the score at 17-all and went ahead 18-17 by an ace from Suelle Oliveira. Dusanka Karic responded with an ace carrying her team to 19-17. Rizola Neto Antonio called a timeout to recover his team, but Serbians never lost the control and gained the set 25-22.
Brazil upped their tempo and overwhelmed its opponent in the second set. Brazilians were very effective in blocks with 13 points. The Balkan team struggled till 14-12, and then looked completely powerless as Brazil made a great rally with 11 points in row and won the set 25-12.
The third set was in the same fashion with the previous one. Brazil improved to 8-8, 16-13 leads with attacks of Regiane Bidias, the best scorer (15) for the winner, and Fernanda Rodrigues in turn. Serbians tried to fight back anyway Brazil was too strong and captured the lop-sided set 25-16.
Brazil was unstoppable for the Serbians also in the last set and commanded the game from the beginning to the end. The Serbians, playing without their best scorer Sanja Hanusic (103 in six games), fought hard during the whole match, but Brazil was too strong for them and clinched the set 25-14.
